As the year ends, we would like to extend our gratitude for your support of our work, which has helped us have such an impactful year. In 2022, we had our largest cross-country team in program history; we expanded our direct programs hosting our first-ever summer sports camp featuring basketball, tennis, cross-country and soccer; and celebrated our junior golf team reaching big milestones on and off the course.
In addition to direct programs offered by NB3FIT, our Community Empowerment team continued strengthening community knowledge by leading two cohorts made up of ten communities across Indian Country. Our Evaluation and Research team presented and shared the “Keeping Track: Toolkit for Indigenous Youth Program Evaluation” more widely, digitized the NB3FIT knowledge kits and developed Indigenized knowledge kit icons that resonate with Native youth and their cultural identity.
While we reflect on an encouraging year behind us, we are still focused on the work ahead. Native communities and youth serving programs still need adequate funding and resources to address barriers affecting their children’s health. With your support, we will continue being a leader in Native children’s health working with communities to provide new learning opportunities, resources and direct programs.
With a donation this holiday season, you can provide scholarships for Native youth to attend summer camp; cover the costs of equipment and healthy snacks for youth programs; and help fund community-led initiatives focused on improving the lives of Native youth.
Donations can be made directly on our website at www.nb3foundation.org, or mailed to NB3 Foundation at 290 Prairie Star Rd, Santa Ana Pueblo, NM 87004. Every dollar is needed to ensure Native families have access to healthy youth programs for their children.
We appreciate your generosity and support this time of year!
